The Auto Trader expert verdict:
Available new from £60,540
Where many premium SUVs mistakenly push the ‘sport’ side at the expense of the more important ‘utility’ bit, the Land Rover Discovery has always put practicality first, the huge interior space and endlessly adaptable seating for up to seven occupants now matched with improved quality and Land Rover’s latest Pivi Pro infotainment system. A visual nip and tuck includes revised LED headlights with fancy ‘animated’ indicators while new mild hybrid petrol and diesel engines complete the 2021 model year update and equip the Discovery to compete with rivals like the Volvo XC90. The lack of a plug-in hybrid option like the Volvo may be a disappointment for some but, in all other regards, the Discovery is a class act.
Reasons to buy:
- Massive - and massively practical
- Powerful new engines
- Much improved tech
